"Difficult reading, but an extremely well-written political statement about Turkey—not just then, but as it is now."
Actor, playwright and novelist Bogosian (Perforated Heart, 2009, etc.) retells the horrors of the Turkish attempt to eradicate the Armenians: the century's first ethnic cleansing. Read full book review >

"Only the vivid portraits of presanitized, pregentrified New York neighborhoods offer some relief from the sour monotony of the two Richards' escapades."
In actor/playwright Bogosian's third novel (Wasted Beauty, 2005, etc.), a successful middle-aged author finds another writer just as egotistical: himself, many years younger. Read full book review >
WASTED BEAUTY by Eric Bogosian
Released: May 1, 2005

"The lovers' high-wire act, in the final third, is gripping, the earlier stuff, like Reba copping drugs, merely titillating. Not surprisingly, Bogosian has a fine ear: more dialogue and fewer interior monologues might have made for a leaner, more powerful tale."
Farm girl becomes supermodel in actor Bogosian's dark, raunchy second novel (after Mall, 2000), about sex and drugs in the big city. Read full book review >
MALL by Eric Bogosian
Released: Nov. 8, 2000

"Bogosian's determined love for the banal, rickety cultural attitudes and artifacts he's sending up places this despairing, funny debut in the vast sea of satire somewhere between Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho and Carl Hiaasen's school of South Florida crazies."
Just another violent, surrealistic day at the most American locale of all, courtesy of the celebrated actor and performance artist's first novel. Read full book review >
